      Rubber Key Remote.

      Guy's, we have recently had Sky Q installed which we are very impressed with. However my wife hates the touch remote and complains it is awkward (I think it's her that's awkward!!). The system came with just the single remote, not two like previous. Please, does anyone know if the rubber key version would work if I was to get one for her?

      TIA

      David

      If I’m not mistaken, even a Sky+HD remote handset will work too but certainly the non-touch Q control does.

      Yes the standard remote as it is called, will work fine.
      You can pair a touch and a standard remote to any of the Sky Q boxes. But it is limited to only two paired remotes per box at any one time.
      A sky+hd remote will not work with Sky Q.
      You can also use devices like the logitech range of harmony remotes to work with Sky Q, if you prefer them.
      There is also a Sky Q accessibility remote that you can purchase;

      When Sky Q was launched the Skt+ HD remotes did indeed work.

      Sky, in their infinite wisdom, disabled the Sky+ HD codes in an update soon after. Our guess is that this was a hangover from testing.
